One of those incredible days when everything just goes right.
With rapidly rising young actress/model Abbey Callton at the local Sensory Gardens for a "Winter in the Outdoors" photoshoot yesterday.
So with the cool, crisp sun glittering on the Lake, and the Rainbow Lorrikeets and their early season young rejoicing in the last of the Grevillea flowers around us, we settled into a very productive session.
And then came the ladies: a small but noisy group pausing on their brisk constitutional:
"OOoo...It's a real photoshoot!"... "What lovely clothes"... "Isn't she pretty?"
And then amidst the obligatory camera phone snaps, they were slightly startled: surprised and delighted by a disarming smile, a friendly wave, and a cheery "Hello" from what I am sure they believed would be an aloof, maybe even snooty "Model".
Not a bad way to eke out a living, eh?
